News League of Legends Players
Christmas may have come and gone, but League of Legends developer Riot Games is not yet finished handing out gifts. In a post on the developer's website last night, Riot explained that players who demonstrated positive behavior in 2014 are being rewarded with free stuff. From Riot: "Over the next few days, we'll be rewarding positive League of Legends players with a classic Mystery Gift as thanks for being such an awesome part of our community. If you haven’t received a chat restriction, ranked restriction, 14-day ban, or permanent ban in 2014, and you meet the requirements to receive a Mystery Gift (you're Level 5 or higher and there are at least 10 skins you don't own), you're on our list!" Riot isn't the only game developer handing out late Christmas gifts. Bungie just recently said that it has a special, "Legendary" gift to give to Destiny players, which will should be delivered sometime this week. Did you receive the League of Legends mystery gift for good behavior? Let us know what it was in the comments below!
USA vs. Ukraine odds – Americans slight dogs in
(SN) The United States men’s soccer team faces Ukraine Wednesday in an international friendly that almost didn’t happen. The unrest in the Ukraine forced the game to be moved to Cyprus, and reports surfaced early in the week that Ukraine was going to pull out of the contest. But both the U.S. and Ukrainian soccer federations have declared the match will take place(ESPN2, 2 p.m. ET ET). The American's most recent friendly, a 2-0 win against South Korea, was not played on a date designated for international matches by FIFA, meaning coach Jurgen Klinsmann could only call in players who were in their offseasons -- primarily MLS guys. With the MLS season starting Saturday and Wednesday being a recognized FIFA date, the U.S. roster filled with Europe-based players. That includes Jozy Alitdore and Clint Dempsey, who have struggled in the Premier League recently, as well as Geoff Cameron, Danny Williams and longtime USA veteran Oguchi Onyewu, all of whom have been performing well. Midfielder Michael Bradley was called in for the game, but has since withdrawn and will not be available. Ukraine is the highest-ranked team by FIFA (No. 18) not to make the 2014 World Cup, as they surrendered a 2-0 advantage in its playoff tie against France. While the FIFA rankings aren’t always the most reliable way to measure a team, this Ukrainian side is one of the best teams that won’t be in Brazil this summer. Though the game is taking place at a neutral site, the LVH SuperBook has made the USA a slight underdog for the contest. The game is a pick 'em on the goal line, with the USA offered at +110 and the Ukraine laying -130. On the three-way result, Ukraine is +145, the USA is +190 and a draw +145. The total is 2.5 goals.
NASA images from space show North Korea shrouded
(CNN) -- Give an astronaut on the International Space Station a digital camera and you're bound to end up with some astounding images -- especially if they're flying above North Korea.
When the space station passed over East Asia one night recently, a member of NASA's Expedition 38 crew took a series of photographs that show just how off-the-grid the Hermit Kingdom really is.
While thriving cities and major roads are seen glowing across South Korea and China, the landscape between the two countries is so dark that it's difficult to tell where the sea ends and North Korea begins.
Pyongyang "appears like a small island," says NASA, noting that the light emission from the North Korean capital is equivalent to the smaller towns of its neighbor to the south.
The space agency, which turned the images into a timelapse video, says city lights at night are a good indicator of the relative affluence of cities.
Looking at the images, it's hardly a surprise that energy use is dramatically different on either side of the 38th parallel. In South Korea, per capita power consumption is 10,162 kilowatt hours while in North Korea the figure is 739 kilowatt hours, according to World Bank data.
